When it comes to fashion, nothing is more iconic than the 90s. It’s been over 30 years since the remarkable decade started and all the styles—from bucket hats to fanny packs—are back and chicer than ever.

The latest in Y2K viral fashion? The beloved clog shoe. TikTok is bringing back this iconic style in a big way, most recently with these orange chunky clogs from Target going viral in a recent flurry of videos. The biggest reason why these shoes have the internet in a chokehold is because they’re modeled off the closet of Lizzie McGuire (AKA the Y2K closet of our dreams). Lizzie’s animated alter-ego rocked the chunky, bright-orange platforms, and these Target clogs are basically identical (other than the fact that the original pair is from a cartoon).


ICYMI, clogs have been coming in and out of style since the history of fashion. The style was originally designed in the Netherlands in the 13th century, but really made its way into the fashion cycle in the late ‘60s and ‘70s, becoming synonymous with the hippie style and the perfect companion to bell bottom jeans. The style came back with a hot resurgence in the ‘90s and early aughts with the likes of Carrie Bradshaw from Sex in The City and Claire ​​Horowitz from Clueless flocking to the clog. 

But don’t be intimidated by the chunky platform—the vibrant Alanna Slide Wedge Heels from Target are easy to style. You can pair them with a fun, light-washed denim, like these PacSun Light Blue Slit Baggy Jeans, and a cropped white or black top, like the MadeWell Brightside Tank, to allow for the clog to really shine. If you’re feeling bold, you can pair with a colorful dress, such as Micas Contrast Twisted Front Midi Dress.

If Lizzie McGuire orange is a bit too bold for your liking, Target also has more neutral black and white colors available. You can shop any—or all (we won’t judge)—3 colors now for just $40.
